difficult proposition, if it's difficult at all." she's the one who had the reset position with sergey lavrov, the foreign minister. do you think she'll be associated with this even though she's not secretary of state? >> i think so. i don't think there's any opportunity for hillary to separate herself from the obama administration's foreign policy since she was the one who cracked it from the beginning. to the extent that she's been out of the office for a year and the administration has made decisions since then, it's very important observation that to the extent this administration does anything unpopular, hillary is going to be latched to it, anything that is obama baggage is going to attach to hillary quite strongly. >> a new poll shows that 57% of americans approve of the job that hillary clinton did as secretary of state. 69% see her as tough. despite what we've heard about benghazi and other things, i don't know that this is going to hurt her ultimately. >> 67% of people probably know she flew in a lot of airplanes. it's obviously a very important policy that went on when she w

to meet with sergey lavrov in paris, the crisis in ukraine moving into a contest of global diplomacy now, but will the east and the west find some common ground in their different end games? let's bring in nbc's jim maceda from moscow who has the latest. good morning, jim. >> reporter: hey, carl. well, there's been a flurry of diplomacy as you say in the past 24 hours. the chances of avoiding war in ukraine getting a boost one believes from putin's comments yesterday that he saw no need for the use of force in ukraine and has no desire to annex the crimean peninsula. that really has allowed the military confrontation that we've been reporting on now for ten days to take a step back. and even though crimea was tense on the ground today, there was a report of russian seizing yet another anti- -- another ukrainian anti-missile post. the perception really is that ukraine is spinning now not towards war but some kind of diplomatic solution. secretary of state kerry's meeting with his russian counterpart expected in about three hours time sergey lavrov is there first face
to discuss russia and the foreign minister of russia, sergei lavrov is saying that russia will not interfere with ukraine, do you take him at his word? >> we hope so. we hear a lot of worrying things. we hear that russia has started issuing more russian passports to people living in the peninsula, there is also a lot of rumors that victor yanukovych that the former president is hiding at the black sea fleet base. but we think there is a good chance for the countries to start a new relationship. russia has to understand this is an independent country and russia has to respect it's territorial and political choice. >> if yanukovych goes to russia that will career out problems because they want him tried by the international criminal court in the haige for crimes against you man at this. but shouldn't he be tried in ukraine? >> this is what my he can specs takes is. i really think that he should go through a ukrainian court when the ukrainian nation knows exactly what he has been doing in the last years i want him to go through trial in ukraine i can't, it's clear that his career is over and we
of ukraine. the foreign minister sergei lavrov says there's an attempt to turn russian-speaking residents into non-citizens. live to independence square, tim willcox. >> reporter: this national unity government is expected to be announced tomorrow. parliament is sitting today. we're expecting remarkable, extraordinary scenes later on. the potential cabinet ministers are due to be paraded on the stage just behind me here in independence square. at 7:00 local time, in some sort of x factor style, reality tv parade so the crowd can hear who they are and presumably cheer or boo if they are unhappy. then those cabinet ministers will be voted in, or perhaps not, by parliament tomorrow. you were mentioning, also that the riot police, the marks men, the snipers who many here believe were responsible for the deaths last week, that unit is to be disbanded and the interim president, oleksandr turchynov, will be assuming control of the armed forces. that will be quite a key moment as well. at the moment, buildings here in central kiev are being gartded by the protest groups and demonstrators. i went
'd spoken to his russian counterpart sergei lavrov and had to drop off and reaffirm that those military exercise on ukraine's border were previously scheduled visit is that the way you can read the situation you can get in holland always remember if you want to communicate. and one of all time. the key is colic know it's extremely important when you came across ukraine is in front front room. richardson has been recorded on him new defensive position. some extent. o lord. mccain has been torn cost of billions into two groups the country according to success. really cute. most old will form one to take up to the soviet union. beginning the boat and the more clicks. and though something new. practice is for cold. the unwanted three kickoffs for them. i really don't know if it's true. i asked americans to show you one. which has become independent and before the soviet union and one. and into today. the russians have not really except in between i think it's it's it's up to boom times. we don't need kids to use the lies the aggressive dropped to one four. the same townn so far wed looked i
right now. so russia, the russian officials, sergey lavrov can give assurances that they will not invade, not do a military intervention but in fact what we see happening in reality is a smaller pinprick kind of thing distributed. those troops in the airport, troops surrounding a pro-russian television station. that appears what is playing out right now. it doesn't have to be a georgia-style invasion to be a serious military intervention and i see officials in kiev saying that this intervention will have, in their words, serious consequences. >> and jim acosta at the white house, we're expecting president obama to come out any moment and address this. this is a delicate dance for the white house. the president needing to assert his feelings but also not wanting to create more of a provocation than it needs to be. there's a battle of wills between president obama and putin. >> that's right, jake. he doesn't view the situation with president putin as an international chess match but that appears to be what is taking place. so we've been asking jay carney all week, you may not see it this w
spoke with russia's foreign minister, sergei lavrov, earlier today, again telling russia not to engage. so, that is what we have been hearing all along. president obama will undoubtedly come out with some stern words. what he will say specifically, we'll have to wait and see, but of course, earlier today, the former president of ukraine, yanukovych, has not been deposed he still leads himself as the leader of ukraine, despite the fact that many do not see the situation in that light. so president obama will come out. i expect him to have strong words from russia. clearly, this situation and russia entering that space only increasing tensions between the east and the west, between the united states and russia. u.s. officials have said all week long that this is not a return to the cold war, but alex there is no doubt that if russia has, in fact, engaged and entered ukraine, that that will increase these tensions, increase what has been a very frosty relationship between the united states and russia as of late. alex? >> you know, kristen, we spoke with national security adviser, ben rhod
with russian foreign minister sergei lavrov by phone. kerry said lavrov assured him that moscow has no designs on ukraine. >> i made it clear that intervention would, in our judgement, be a very grave mistake. i nevertheless, made it clear that that could be misinterpreted at this moment and that there are enough tensions that it is important for everybody to be extremely careful not to inflame the situation and not to send the wrong messages. he reaffirmed to me that president putin is committed and that as a matter of policy, they do not intend to violate the sovereignty of ukrainement. >> and this afternoon the united nations security council met to discuss ukraine. >> meanwhile the deposed president of ukraine viktor yanukovych renewed his claim on that post today in his first public appearance since he fled kiev last friday. he called the pending may 25 elections illegitimate, and the interim ukrainian leadership bandits, speaking in the russian city of rostovondon, hard by the ukrainian border. >> ( translated ): i intend to continue to fight for the future of ukraine against those who
, sergey lavrov, and his chinese counterpart have spoken by phone about the situation. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: well, we know simply from the russian foreign ministry that they had this talk and that their views, russia and china, their views coincide on this issue and that they would be staying in close contact. there are so many high-level talks going on. there is also an osce meeting this afternoon to try and resolve this physician, and john kerry will be coming to kiev on tuesday. so, so many diplomatic efforts. and i've got to tell you, the people here in crimea feel like thaerz caught in the middle of it, and a lot of people say, please, put the message across that right here it's peaceful now. it seems to be that the real anguish, the angst is going on in the war of words around this small part of ukraine, christine. >> that's a really good point. diana magnay, thank you so much. and of course, so much of the issue here is that ukraine is quite literally the pipeline for russia and so much exports of oil and gas to europe. this is right there, the footprint, the
ahead. this morning, foreign minister sergey lavrov insisted his government is acting in its own defense. here's nbc's jim maceda who has more from moscow. >> reporter: putin now has his hand on the russian crown jewel. crimea gives putin an essential warm water port, and it counters in his mind the nightmare scenario. that's what he sees as an ultranationalist government suddenly cancelling russia's lease on the black see base and kiev taking control of crimea and then joining nato down the line, bringing the enemy, in his mind, right back to russia's doorstep. so vladimir putin has made that calculus, and it's now unclear just what the west can do about it. chuck, back to you. >> thank you, jim. right now, according to folks i've talked to, the u.s. has three options, none of them involve the u.s. military. the first, the u.s. could move along with european allies to officially suspend or kick russia out of the g8. that would be symbolic. second, the administration could pursue its own sanctions that target russian banks as well as international sanctions, targeting russian oil compani
.k., the foreign secretary, and also the ukrainian -- he invited sergey lavrov, to join them as part of this budapest amendment, what he was hoping would be part of a diplomatic way forward. but the russian foreign minister declined to attend the meeting, citing scheduling conflicts. even as the u.s. pushes for this diplomatic way forward, it's looking very rough, wolf. >> looking very rough indeed. so he has wrapped up his talks. the u.s., and correct me if i am wrong, it does formally recognize this new interim government in kiev, the government that replaced the ousted president as the legitimate government of ukraine, right? >> reporter: that's right. it doesn't recognize president yanukovych as the president of ukraine any longer, even though that's what the russians are recognizing. secretary kerry met with many members of the new government, members of the parliament and said that the u.s. wants to help them move towards the elections they'll be having. in may, they'll be training, and they also announced a very robust aid package for ukraine to the tune of $1 billion loan gua
administration first four years who went to moscow and met with sergey lavrov and brought that ridiculous staples tv commercial reset button. she pochd that. you may remember it was actually overcharge button as lavrov explained. now hitting retreat button and putin hitting humiliate button. of course she wants to distance herself. hitler comparisons are not necessarily inappropriate. one totalitarian as good as another. hitler wasn't hitler until it started invading countries. >> certainly stronger statements than we've heard from president obama. >> sure. hillary is hard as nails. barack obama is kind of a neophyte when it comes to these matters. lets be honest, president obama has botched every foreign policy entanglement that he's been involved with from libya to egypt to syria to iran. you know, i can see why hillary would want to distance herself from him. >> leslie, should president obama be listening to hillary clinton? >> i was a hillary girl before he got the nomination so that's tough. i want to say because we're women, i think if a woman runs for president she needs to show she can be
with his russian counterpart, sergey lavrov. secretary kerry said he urged lavrov to engage in direct talks with ukraine. meantime, parallel talks between nato and russia are being held in brussels, belgium. secretary kerry also met in paris today with u.s. allies. that meeting included ukraine's new interim foreign minister, who was one of the protesters in kiev. he actually traveled to paris with kerry after kerry's high profile visit to that country's capital yesterday. the meeting concluded with issuing of the statements saying in part, "united states, united kingdom, and ukraine agreed direct talks between ukraine and russia facilitated as needed by members of the international community are crucial to resolving the current situation." meantime, russian troops remain in firm control of ukraine's crimea peninsula, amid lingering fears they will not stop there. jim maceda joins us live from moscow with more on the diplomatic efforts under way. jim, what's the latest? >> reporter: hi, there, tamron, well, that meeting you referred to was indeed brief, kerry did urge lavrov to have direct
john kerry and potential sergey lavrov. we'll keep you updated. they're trying to find an exit to this crisis. we have heard from secretary kerry once. here he was earlier laying the foundation before the talks began. >> the united states of america, the russian federation, and the united kingdom of great britain and north ireland reaffirm their obligation to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of ukraine. weapons will not be used against ukraine. >> congress is stepping in, and russian president vladimir putin, here was speaker boehner this morning on the subject. >> steps that have not been taken over the last three or four years frankly allowed putin to believe that he could do what he's doing without -- without any reaction from us. but given where we are, we're here in a bipartisan way trying to irk with with the president. >> john boehner urging more action and the u.s. is not alone in offering up assistance. the european union is now offering a massive aid package, $15 billion to the interim yo ukrainian gov
, stabilize and overcome this crisis. >> ifill: but russian foreign minister sergei lavrov gave no indication, before or after the paris meeting, that moscow would pull back in crimea. instead, he insisted, again, that the troops occupying much of the region are not russian, but local. >> ( translated ): regarding the self-defense forces created by the people of crimea, we do not have any power over them, they do not listen to our orders. >> ifill: lavrov also declined to meet with ukraine's acting foreign minister. he said there would be further discussions in days to come. meanwhile, in crimea itself, u.n. special envoy robert serry was forced to abandon his mission there after his car was surrounded and he was threatened by a pro-russian crowd. new trouble cropped up elsewhere as well. pro-russian activists stormed and re-took a government building in the eastern city of donetsk, only hours after being ejected. there's been no talk of any american military action in ukraine, but defense secretary chuck hagel told a senate hearing that the pentagon is taking other steps. >> i earlier this w
and sergey lavrov in paris. that meeting appears to have accomplished exactly zero. angela merkel called putin's moves out of touch, and in the meantime, hillary clinton compared vlad putin to adolf hitler. folks, the mood is tenls. the region unstable, but let's bring it to the table and talk about the political ramifications. bob, i'm going to start with you. your thoughts on everything? >> first, i think the eu stepped forward more quickly than i thought. what the russians have said is they ought to stick to an agreement with the eu that was made by the former president, which will not happen. it's interesting to me that these elections -- somebody will be elected who will be pro-western. the former president who is now hiding out in the soviet union had a deal with the russians to extend their lease on the naval base for about 25 years. it was supposed to be up in 2017. that will not happen. curious to see what putin does. the second thing that strikes me is so far as i can tell, maybe shep can fill us in on this, but i don't think they have moved more troops to the border of crimea
kerry meets with russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov, but so far lavrov is unling to meet with the new ukrainian foreign minister. john harwood has more. >> good evening, larry. the u.s. positioned some planes, a u.n. envoy was harassed in crimea. there was a pledge for an aid package to go with $1 billion from the united states that's under discussion. john kerry met with his ukrainian and russian counterparts and compressed optimism that those talks would continue and bear fruit. >> we agreed to continue intense discussions in the coming days with russia, with the ukrainance, in order to see how we can help normalize the situation, stabilize it and overcome the crisis. all parties agreed today that it is important to try to resolve these issues through dialogue. >> of course, the question is when the russian and ukrainian foreign ministers will meet. russia is resisting that, because they don't recognize the new ukrainian government. meanwhile, members of congress tomorrow are going to start debating a sanctions resolution as a means of putting pressure on russia to take
going seriously south today was this morning when russian foreign minister sergei lavrov said that ukrainian power militaries actually attacked the ministry in crimea, wounding several people, presumably ethnic russians. despite there being no confirmation, no evidence of that, that alleged threat to russian compatriots in ukraine triggered a quick escalation, which russia has used many times before to justify an invasion. first the leader of ethnic russians in crimea called on president putin to send forces in to protect them from hostile extremists. then very quickly putin replied, requesting the use of force. and as you said in your lead, getting that request from force from the parliament. all that happening within just hours. now, that doesn't mean, alex, that putin will send in more troops and tanks to crimea. there are already plenty there. there is the black sea fleet base with thousands of russian troops. many of whom, by the way, have taken up positions securing airports, government buildings, telecom towers over the past 48 hours. but it does spike the tension even
the issue through dialogue. the secretary having a meeting today with his russian counterpart, sergei lavrov, in paris, and that this news conference coming after that meeting. john harwood with the reaction now. and, john, this certainly has a much more diplomatic tone at least from john kerry's mouth. >> exactly. we haven't heard from sergei lavrov, the russian foreign minister, but the point you made, the relevant çmade, is t apt one. that is that secretary kerry came out of these meetings saying everyone wanted to resolve these through dialogue and we will have intensive discussions going forward. there was no indication that the united states was sensing any escalation of the situation. now is the time to try to persuade russia to take that off-ramp that u.s. officials have been trying to put in front of it, and we'll see whether that happens. but i think people have to take it as a hopeful sign that at least it's not -- does not appear from secretary kerry's statements that it's getting worse and that we're on a diplomatic track now for at least the time being. >> john harwood, thank
. >> reporter: secretary of state john kerry said that in a phone call today, russian foreign minister sergey lavrov assured him the exercises are not related to the ukraine. but he cautioned -- >> statements are statements. words are words. we have all learned that it's actions and the follow-on choices that make the greatest difference. >> reporter: so if russia does not send troops inside ukraine, what could be its intentions? >> definitely take this as a signal that russia is testing itself on sending a message that it is prepared to do things if there is a situation that develops that russia feels it has to protect its interests. >> reporter: and now in a odd coincidence, a russian intelligence ship docked in cuba 90 miles from florida without explanation from havana or moscow. now, russian officials also assured the u.s. that russia was not behind the storming of that parliament building in eastern ukraine. lavrov said he learned about it first watching the television. there is a trust deficit here. when kerry asked if he trusted putin, he said, wolf, there is some value in putin and th
of diplomacy, really intense diplomacy by all those with leverage and relationships with putin, with sergey lavrov, with the leadership right now, as well as the leadership in ukraine. >> hold on christiane, i want everyone to hold on. we'll continue the breaking news coverage. not every day the president of the united states goes into the white house briefing room and issues a tough warning to russia.
